SignalFire’s RANGER Family of Sensor-to-Cloud Expands with the New DIN Mount Version offering
MARLBOROUGH, MA –July 5, 2022… SignalFire Wireless Telemetry is pleased to announce the addition of the new DIN RANGER to the growing family of sensor-to-cloud cellular data transmission products. This new DIN rail mountable DC powered version of the RANGER is ideal for applications with existing power and panel boxes, allowing a simple way to add remote monitoring capabilities to existing systems including pulling data from Modbus devices. The DIN RANGER requires less than 2.5mA of external DC power, while also offering more inputs and outputs. Due to the unique low power features of LTE-M & NB-IoT cellular technologies, the DIN Ranger integrates with Modbus RTU devices, offering an “always on, bi-directional” connection with a cloud application over cell networks.
While SignalFire provides a full turn-key solution that includes the RANGER hardware bundled with a SIM card and its SignalFire Cloud web application, the RANGER is also offered as hardware only ̶ untethered to the SignalFire Cloud. This configuration is a rather unique industry option that offers an open platform for easy integration directly into a customer’s existing solution. The RANGER products use the open MQTT/Sparkplug standard, which is quickly becoming the preferred protocol for distributed industrial sensor networks.
“Since the release of the RANGER it has been deployed in so many applications in diverse industries because it addressed an unmet need… to monitor assets cost effectively with minimal computer or automation skills. We deliver to users a plug-and-play experience from sensor-to-cloud.” stated Sandro Esposito, VP Sales & Marketing of SignalFire.
“The need to bring remote data from a variety of sensors and controllers quickly and simply to the cloud continues to drive interest and demand for the RANGER. Our talented product development teams will continue to evolve the RANGER product family to support more applications as they arise,” stated Josh Schadel, GM/CTO of SignalFire.
